The latest print edition of The Tennessee Journal is out. Here is what’s in it:

— House Republican leaders, Cade Cothren, and Todd Warner run into each other in a Nashville steakhouse. What could go wrong?

— Lee’s toll lane proposal on cruise control after clearing key committees.

— How the package of bills targeting Nashville for GOP snub could play out.

— Legislative roundup: Outside counsel for the legislature, a delay on bill to add abortion exceptions, a reprieve for Tennessee State, and the tables get turned on the ready-to-drink cocktails bill.

Also: Andy Ogles says mistakes were made, the House tables a motion to honor a vocal critic, the revenue commissioner’s “big sexy” moment in court, and Bill Lee’s yearbook problem.
